party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out, and let's take a look at this right now. >> are the president's kid more important than yours? than why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? chris: when you bring the kids of the president in, who are protected against kidnappi

challenge of working with republican majority in house and possibly innocent. what lessons might obama learned from history were he reelected? confronted with a congress dominated by republicans, further complicating his challenge is that appearance, disappearance of the spirit of compromise which is so been a mainstay of legislation throughout the nation's history, with one very momentous exception. members of congress in the south would not compromise on the subject of the expansion of slavery, 11 states seceded and the civil war ensued. we have heard much about the impending battle between the president and congress over the extension of the bush tax cuts, raising the debt limit, and the potential of automatic cuts in spending. necessity of resolving these issues is what chairman frank he refers to as the fiscal cliff. -- chairman bernanke. it's likely the decision will be given brief extensions so that the next president and congress will be saddled with making the decision. as a second term president, obama would face obstacles rarely experienced by a chief executive returning to

of power; obama in the white house, democrats in control of the senate, republicans of the house. but appearances can be deceiving and in this case are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan -- which was their own only a few years earlier -- socialism was not reward withed. rewarded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was the important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> host: two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.
